The program consists of 33-equivalent US credit hours of graduate-level core and elective study.  

In addition to a bibliographic methods course and a required thesis, all students are required to complete 3 credits in each of the following four core areas:

  1. American Literature/Linguistics/Arts/Humanities
  2. Contemporary American Society
  3. Diversity in the American Experience
  4. American History
The balance of the 15 credit hours in the degree is elective.

Students who choose to study abroad will take 4 courses in Hungary at the University of Pannonia, and the balance of their course work in the United States at Nazareth College.

Since the curricular structure in Hungary is different than it is in the United States, courses at the University of Pannonia will be taken in pairs as course-dyads.  Each course-dyad is the equivalent to one 3.0 credit hour course at Nazareth College.

Because the degree will be granted in the US by Nazareth College, Hungarian coursework will be treated as transfer credit.
